Imagine what in-car experiences would be like if there were no boundaries between devices: if the Head-Unit could ‘see’ all smartphones and tablets in the car, as well as the factory-built RSE. If all it took was a simple swipe for passengers to share content with each other, or start playback to entertain the kids in the back seat.
It sounds easy, but to achieve something as straightforward as sharing content to the next seat takes a lot: initialize DRM, authenticate, negotiate secure connections, determine optimal audio and video codecs, measure latencies, set up servers, clients, repeaters, continuously correct clock drift between all devices, report usage, prefetch for that tunnel coming up ahead, and also deliver seamlessly-synched content across built-in and brought-in devices.
You can relax – we’ve taken care of everything so you can offer your customers the enjoyment of being able to effortlessly share content without barriers, with or without an internet connection.
